In today’s episode of the “Get a Gasp” podcast, Gina Pepitone-Mattiello discusses a topic about which she is very excited - the diagnosis of sleep apnea.


Episode Highlights:


  • The types of physicians most involved with sleep medicine
  • The types of sleep tests/studies that can be ordered and how they work
  • What you will find in a typical sleep report




“I’ll try to make it sound boring even though it’s so crazy exciting for me.”


“Any physician can order a sleep study.”


“Be prepared for lots of glue.”


“It can be a little bit of an awkward feeling when you go for these in-lab sleep studies.”


“Oftentimes…health insurances will…require you to do a home sleep test because it’s much less expensive for them to pay for.”


“With a home sleep test, you’re in your own bed, you’re getting your true night’s sleep, you probably sleep a little longer, and a little deeper, and sometimes…you can get more accurate information from there.”
